my mother has saved a couple of unfinished quilt tops.
if memory serves, my grandmother made this one.
i'll fact check and edit if i'm wrong about the patchwork story you read here.
as i was preparing to use this on our dining room table for a bit, my son stopped me claiming this quilt for his own. he wanted me to put it on his bed right. then. so, i made a decision not to put it on the table but instead see if i could quickly whip this into a simple quilt for his bed by his birthday celebration which is fast approaching. we'll see.
i see fabric that was used in my mother's 4H uniform. i'd love to know stories of as many fabrics as i can. i love the colors. love, love the yellow with little white dots. love the purple & black. love the combinations.
and my grandmother hand stitched everything. i'll serge to keep it strong, as you can see the stitching pulling away here and there. her stitches will remain. i love that. what a gift.
